DJ Lisa I'Anson has been evicted from Celebrity Big Brother.

The 39-year-old became the victim of a surprise eviction during a game of hide-and-seek on the Channel 4 show.

I'Anson scored just 3% in a public vote but smiled in the diary room on learning the news and said: "Oh my God that's amazing."

Caprice, Brigitte Nielsen, ex-Holby City actor Jeremy Edwards, former Happy Mondays star Bez and Blazin' Squad star Kenzie still remain in the house.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes had tipped the DJ as the next to leave, giving her odds of 2/5 with ex-model Caprice next at 5/2.

The reality show Celebrity Big Brother has shed 700,000 viewers since the eviction of entrant John McCririck.

'Complex individual'

Contestants are competing for a 50,000 charity prize.

I'Anson said she was "glad to be out" and predicted that Kenzie would emerge as the winner.

She described fellow evictee John McCririck as "a complex individual", adding: "If I see him, of course I will speak with him."

I'Anson spoke warmly of her friendship with model Caprice, and described the blonde as her "baby".
